Rated 2 out of 5 by DunbarLady So disappointed
Very disappointing and I now know why they are being discontinued. The measure MAY have been 100 inches before the pleating, perhaps, maybe, if stretched hard. The header of these drapes are so big that they can't stand up and fall over looking cheap and sloppy. They don't meet in the middle of the window so I can't use the drapery draw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by happy2helpu good material
Before purchasing I read all the reveiws on this product. I previously had custom sheers that were under my tie back drapes. My dog's nails effectively tore the single window sheer. I was lucky I came upon these. They are a perfect color match for the sheers on my bay window. They hang very nice considering the price vs custom. I do agree though that the bottom panel vis-a vie the top pleats are reversed regarding the length and the pleat is far from a custom look. Luckily, the top pinch pleat is hidden under the custom cornice so it works for me. Martha certainly goofed on this design, a little more expertise, even if the cost was slightly more, would have made this a 5 star sheer. Because of the chinsy pinch pleat, if the sheer is not hidden, the draping can be off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alwayslkng4brgns Not for me
After reading other reviews for these panels, I decided to take a chance and order them anyway. As other reviewers have said, the top header seemed to be too wide and the hem too short. The interfacing in the header was some type of woven or textured material that made the header look even worse. Others have mentioned that the tags were sewn into the header and visible when the curtains were hanging. It's as if they did as much as possible to draw attention to the worst part of the panels. I hung one panel just to be sure I wasn't being overly critical and focusing too much on things that wouldn't be noticeable when the panels were hanging. All I could see was the header, the strange weave of the heading material and the tag. I returned the panels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Al00 Size is not as advertised
These are advertised as 50x84 panels, but in fact they are actually 24x84 panels and they send two of them when you purchase one. Now my windows curtains have gaps every 2 feet. Back in 2005 I purchased these same panels and received the actual correct size and they didn't have gaps in my large picture windows. If you advertise 50x84 you should provide like before

Rated 1 out of 5 by iluvmyhouse2 low quality
I was disappointed with the quality of the fabric. The top where you put the hooks in is extremely cheap. The interface should be a stiff fabric. The headers were 6 inches high and yet the curtains headers are 5 inches. So I have to hem the shears. You would think they would be the same height. Like everything we buy now the price is high and the quality is not. I shop at Penny's alot and I ordered these, they were not in stock if I would have seen them I would not have bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ia3d rare to find pinch-pleat window treatments
It is hard to find pinch-pleat window treatments in today's market offerings. Unfortunately, these come in only 25"-wide panels and I needed to cover 150". I tried the idea of purchasing 3 sets, giving me 6 - 25" panels, and combining three panels on each side. I didn't like the idea of the panels not being connected, through, and wasn't about to go through sewing them together, so I returned the order. Too bad they're not in wider widths.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LiveAloneGuy Description Misleading
I think the quality and price of the "pinch-pleated" curtains was good, however, after buying "rod-pocket" curtains and getting two panels 50" wide I received two "pinch-pleated" panels 25" wide. I was hoping not to have a split showing which two 50" panels would have accomplished. Being a live-alone man I realize I don't know a lot about curtains. Unfortunately, I don't think the person who sold me the curtains knew they would come like this either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by StilllLooking much too thin/sheer
Very sheer material. The texture of the header material showed through between the pleats at the top. Pleats are only two-finger, making the curtain look cheap. (You get what you pay for in this case.) These would be more acceptable if used with a valance. It would be nice to have more choices on curtain width for wider windows. I returned this product to the store, that experience was fine.
